A podcast I didn’t know I needed

As a business consultant, I meet so many entrepreneurs who think there’s a specific formula or secret to success. I tell them everyone finds it in their own way, but all roads lead to Rome! This podcast demonstrates that exact concept. So many local entrepreneurs have fantastic stories to share about the journey to where they are now. No matter which interview you start with, you’re bound to find a golden nugget of wisdom. My favorite so far has been the interview with Marsha Doll of Marsha Doll Models. Entertaining, informative, and inspiring—everything you want from a good podcast. Give it a listen!
